Stephen at the bar at the Black Bear Diner, Salinas. I love this photo for the colour range and depth, as well as for capturing the experience of this diner through a single photo. It will do it for us, although I suspect it would not do it for anyone else.

Continuing SF and surrounds exploration with the A7R

We took off for a little driving trip, down the coast from San Francisco through Monterey (an overnight), Big Sur, Cambria (overnight), then Salinas (overnight) to Danville (overnight). So, there have been lots of opportunities to take photos of the landscape and local attractions. I’m using the camera without a specific camera case, sometimes a roomy handbag and sometimes my little backpack. I haven’t had time to make selections and post on Flickr during the past few days, but have uploaded and done a quick review in Bridge at the end of each day. Lots of the photos are snapshots, documenting our trip, but I have also tried to get some which may be satisfying, even when I review them after a few months. I tend to be rather in love with them at first, so it’s not a good time to make any judgements.Image

I’m still loving the quality of the photos. I’ve been reading Soundimageplus, where David has found some problems with the kit lens, but haven’t actually scrutinised my photos for edge softness. For my purpose, this lens is very convenient.

This photo was taken in the little housing estate where we are staying. Although everything is new the style is something like a traditional English or European city.
